Chicken sage pesto sandwiches

Using up the last of the herbs from the summer garden–this week: Sage. This savory herb is great inside a whole roasted chicken, I also like to make this sandwich, with a fresh take on pesto using sage.

Chicken sandwiches with sage pesto

For chicken:

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1/4c vinegar (I used VOM FASS calamansi–light and citrusy)
  • 1/3c olive oil
  • Baguette
  • Granny smith apple

For pesto:

  • 1/3c sage leaves
  • 1/2 bunch arugula
  • 1/4c walnuts (or pine nuts)
  • 1/3c parmesan
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Olive oil, salt and pepper

Tenderize chicken, marinate in garlic/olive oil/vinegar mixture for at least a couple hours. Make the pesto by processing sage, arugula, walnuts, parmesan and garlic in a food processor or blender. Add oil until the mixture is smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Grill the chicken. Top baguette with chicken, sage pesto and sliced granny smith apples.
